  1. Well, the point is, people thought that those who were requesting this kind of functionality were somehow amiss. It is not all there yet, but it is a capability that is desired, nontheless, and EN seem to have acknowledged it with this add. Ultimately, it is up to EN to determine the "size" of that requirement and if there is business sense to implement it. The comments such as the quote from above in 2013 seem more aimed at shutting down the conversation than in helpfully digging deeper to the what and why. Maybe the intention wasn't meant that way, but it sure comes across as such to outside observers. Too bad, as we love volunteer gurus who provide help. Unhelpful editorial comments, notwithstanding.
  2. "Why would anyone want to do that?" Funny how many naysayers there are. Googled how to reference in EN a document that exists on a cloud service and came across this thread, and also EN's January 2017 announcement of just such a service. Imagine that! https://evernote.com/google-drive/ Rather than some kludgy workaround, a nice integrated feature is provided by EN. Finally!
  3. Don't know if it was a recent Firefox update (to 50.0.2) or something else not obvious, but this has been happening to me too for a short while. Rather annoying having to log back in after exiting the browser and rentering it (immediately or hours later). Also noticed that an Evernote web quick clipper page usually (but not always!?) pops up (or tries to - sometimes a blank page appears, which I suspect is the EN one, since it sometimes is) when going back in to the browser. Thing is, I've been using the same set of addons for some time, without issue. Now, I can, and probably will have to end up, reinstalling FF and the addons one by one to test if one of them is the cause (if one of these is the culprit), if/when I have time to do problem determination / testing. Would love to give the full list of addons for the Evernote team to debug it, but seeing that it has been an off and on problem for a few years, seems that either some piece gets missed in testing, or that squeezing one end of the balloon makes the other end grow..
  4. Agree. Would like Webclipper button to change to yellow (for example) or a green boundary around the page (another example) to indicate it has been selected. BTW, this requesst has been around for some time. I read somewhere that, as a workaround in Chrome, some have used EN with IFTTT to Diigo. Diigo has an indicator on it's menu button (red exclamation mark) - though it is not perfect (I use Diigo by itself and the indicator is not 100%). It gets low priority because, as I've read, the thinking is "so what?". It is just another entry in EN and a dupe can be deleted when found. For me, the "so what" is when doing research via the net, it would be nice to know that it is ground I have already covered, and have probably already made highlights or notes to that page. When searching for topics via different angles / viewpoints, it is not unusual to find overlap. Given the spread of time over which this research occurs, it is humanly impossible to remember every website captured in EN. It is more than an inconvenience...it is a time waster. EN saves time overall, but this time waste is relatively easy to detect and flag, based on simply matching URLs.
  5. In Chrome, the Add Tag feature allows one to type in any character combination to find an existing tag. In Firefox, the only matches found are exact order matches starting with the first character. This is a problem because one has to memorize all their tags in order to select the right one. I have an extensive list to organize my compilation of web pages. Several of the tags have multiple keywords because of like attributes. FF 38.0.5, Win 7 Home Premium
  6. I cannot get consistent results in using Simplified Article option in either Chrome or Firefox when selecting a forum thread. One of the following happens: 1) Only the first post in a thread is selected 2) Some post on the page further down is selected 3) Several posts from the page are selected, but not all 4) All posts on the page are selected 5) Several posts from the entire thread are selected, but not all 6) All posts from the entire thread are selected (as far as I can determine on some long threads, in some rare cases) Most often, I experience #1 or #4, and #5 (#3 often enough). I cannot predict which will be the case. Not even consistent between Chrome and Firefox. Ideally, I'd like to select posts from the thread to keep, but that may be too much to ask. Next best, I'd like to choose between the first post only, or the entire thread - no use in keeping just the first page if additional information I want may be on subsequent ones - I can use the Article or Full Page options for that, anyway. Another issue is that poster's userid is often not included in the Simplified Article when viewing several posts from a thread. Using Firefox 38.0.5, Win 7 Home Premium Hard to give example of each, as it is unpredictable. This url in firefox gives the first post, but several other threads in that forum with many pages behave differently... http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/2234-upgrade-install-windows-8-windows-8-1-a.html Another example for two different behaviors: First post only... https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/85141-firefox-web-clipper-6026-beta/ First page of posts... https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/83176-6015-in-firefox-not-showing-up/
  7. Noticed that Web Clipper has been recently updated in Firefox - Great!!! However, using the Article option, on Youtube with a single video, two things happen: 1) The selection box sometimes does not automatically select the video, but starts with the comment area - which would be no problem except for... 2) The selection box will sometimes stop expanding, even after clicking the "plus sign" multiple times. This is intermittent, but happens often enough that it is a problem. Works fine in Chrome. Would like the default selection box to include the video (i.e. the picture showing at that point) and the first bit of the text description / comments showing. Even if it just starts with the video and expands to include the other would work. Using Firefox 38.0.5, Win 7 Home Premium
  8. When translating a web page via Google, the ability to narrow the Clipper focus to Article or Simplified Article is lost. The whole page is captured. The title becomes "Google Translate" vs the title of the article. These functions do work nicely on the original page. Here is an example: http://www.stephenhicks.org/2015/03/08/vivemos-realmente-em-um-mundo-de-recursos-escassos-nao/ Apologies if this was asked before. Didn't find it on a quick search.
